  1. Arissa is a tough cookie with a heart of gold, and beauty and brains to boot. But beware because, as a self-proclaimed hothead, Arissa's never one to shy away from drama or back down from a fight. Despite that, though, she's deeply compassionate and would gladly give any of her Real World roomies her last dollar.

    When Arissa first arrived at The Real World: Las Vegas suite in 2002, she was looking for a fresh start. This half-black, half-Italian firecracker grew up in the Boston projects and wanted to put her past behind her, but she couldn't quite get past her trust issues.

    Arissa often butted heads with Frank because of his sometimes unsavory jokes. But during a group retreat, Arissa finally learned the meaning of trust and true friendship. In order to move forward in her life, she willingly fell from the top of a ladder and had her fellow Real Worlders catch her. It was a breakthrough moment for Arissa, as she desperately wanted to learn how to control her temper and let the past be the past.

    After all the roomies went their separate ways, Arissa went through a period of self-discovery and made peace with her past. Arissa now lives with her cat in a house on the ocean, which is something she always dreamed of, and spends most of her time painting and cooking. If there are any negative feelings still stirring about her past or her former Real World roommates, they'll surely surface. But this time kinder, gentler Arissa's ready to face them head-on.
